If you machine didn't come with recovery disks you need to make them. In your user guide ( it gives the steps. Normally you should just have to go into windows back up/restore and follow directions.

Also on that site you can download your manual free if you don't have it already.

Some systems are setup so that when your computer starts to boot you press F10 and it will go into a recovery partition.
Good luck

without using a software package that will let you manually change a password, such as ERD Commander you will be locked out, and you would need to reinstall the Operating System. BPCS

You need to set your CD/DVD/CDRW Disk Drive to Boot First. If the Second set of Recovery CD's don't work, Then they are the Wrong one's for that unit.

SOURCE: Hp webcam doesn't work on Toshiba laptop

try to visit HP's website and download the latest drivers for your webcam for your operating system, probably the driver you have on the cd aren't for you operating system, which btw you didn't mention...
install the package from HP's website, and you should be good.
the CD is never necessary if you have an internet connection.

SOURCE: want to restore factory settings on my toshiba

I am going to make a suggestion, and am not quite certain you will take this as a solution, but it is the best course of action for your laptop. By today's standards, this is on the low-end of laptops, but still very capable for normal tasks. It is only suited for Windows 98, maybe Windows 2000, at best due to the specifications. Considering this, I want to suggest installing Linux on the laptop instead. Linux is an operating system like Windows, does all the same things, and is faster on older systems because it is more efficient. Ubuntu Linux is one of the most popular distributions, as it is used by Dell computers. Here is a link to the ISO cd download:

If you need help burning the ISO file to a CD, then use this link:

Lastly, here is a link to the official documentation page for users coming from Windows to Linux:

Try this, you won't be disappointed, and you will be amazed at how fast the computer runs and how beautiful the linux operating system is not that hard to use, and your daughter will catch on quickly...oh, by the way...Linux is free!!

Restore factory default

Check to see if there is a system restore setup for a previous date, this will allow you to roll-back the changes made. You can find this under the control panel.
If you want to restore back to the original windows settings, you need to reinstall windows from DVD or CD, these are backups made when you first got the laptop.

Im trying to reset my whole computer back to factory settings and dont have the cd. and i do have the empowering technology thing but dont have the password to that the hint is balloon and i dont even know...

The default empowering password is 000000. That would be five or six zeros, I am fairly certain it is 6. You will need to boot from the original C drive for the factory restore to work. Once you enter the password in the empowering technology, you should find the option for a full factory restore.

Hope this helps

Bought Sony Vaio Windows 7 with previous administrative password and need to restore setting's in order to change setting to computer

The laptop is Bios Password Locked, who ever you bought this from must know the administrative password, because the computer will remain locked until this is remedied and you will not be able to restore original settings without the password. If the seller can't provide it, I would return it expecting a refund. Sony charges $100.00 to correct this and you must be the original owner. There are other services that claim they can help and charge a fee.

How do i restore my windows vista laptop to


Restoring your laptop back to it's original settings can be done in numerous ways but it would be easier to give you specific advice if we knew what brand/model of laptop you have.

Nearly all big brand laptops come with a restore disk or at least the ability to create one. Check the disks that came with your laptop for one labeled "restore" or "repair". If it came with a blank cd/dvd then chances are you'll need to create one.

I think this would be the easiest option for you if you're not too familiar with computers. Let me know what laptop you've got & hopefully i'll be able to point you in the right direction.

I need help with my compaq laptop i had to wipe the drive and reinstall windows xp and now i have none of the wireless card driversi mean i have none of the drivers that i can tell none for networking...

Did this laptop originally come with Vista installed, and you downgraded to XP?
Did you install XP from a full Installation disk you bought?
The reason I ask this, is it shows Windows Vista as the original operating system.

I found, as you did that there is no LAN driver available from HP Support, except for Windows Vista. (Broadcom Wireless)

I suggest this:

Contact HP.
I would call them. Much nicer speaking to a real person, and faster than emailing them.

Here is the phone information page,

(Product Name is Presario)
Phone number is 1-800-474-6836

I just called the above 1-800 number, to verify it was still a good working number, and to talk to tech support myself, about what is involved for you to obtain this disk, and if said disk was available for THIS laptop using the Windows XP operating system.
(Apologize for the run-on sentence)
(9:37PM, Thursday, Sept. 17)

[1.Get Tech Support
2.Notebook PC
Wait for tech support. Time I incurred? 3 minutes waiting time]

You'll have to call tech support yourself, so that you can give them THE serial number. At that time, the tech will verify whether drivers are available for LAN, for the Compaq Presario F572US laptop. Then a Restoration Disk will be offered as an option.

Tell them you need the Restoration Disk for your Compaq Presario F572US laptop, running Windows XP.

Tell them the Serial Number, (s/n in the white Service Tag), and the Operating System, (Windows XP)

(Sometimes you have to remind them of the operating system, to be sure there isn't mis-communication, and they send you a Restoration Disk for Vista)

The Restoration Disk is free. The Shipping and Handling is not. The prices are $17 for a 5 to 7 day ship, $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.
(Including Tax)
They have an overnight option also.
